The new 13.9 Catalyst driver for the HD 7xxx series seems a bit unstable.

post #1 of 7

I'm running a pair of 7990s in CrossFireX under Windows 8 Pro 64-bit. Is it just me or has anyone else noticed this driver set to be a little unstable?

Whenever my system switches from the desktop or Metro view into full-screen graphics mode (for a game or benchmark), the screen rolls a few times like it was an old analog TV signal. I have never seen this before this driver release. The beta did the same thing. Catalyst 13.4 did not have this problem.

The screen also locks up about 20% of the time during the same transition.

I have seen this on both of my systems: my new one (Ivy Bridge-E CPU and Asus Rampage IV Extreme mobo) and on my old warhorse system (QX9650 CPU and DFI LanParty X48 mobo).

Rolling back to Catalyst 13.4 makes the issue go away.

Anyone else experiencing this?

I have 3 7XXX rigs ..

A quad 7970 rig..

A dual 7850 rig ..

A single 7950 rig ..

All with a dual boot of Win 7 & 8.

under windows 7 these drivers are great ! frame pacing in Bf3 , grid 2 , tombraider 2012 is smooth as butter.. but

as soon as I switch to the Win 8 sides I have strange issues like you too.

Crossfire doesnt work in NFSMW 2012.. screen flickers in Direct x 9c titles. ..

So definately theres something strange about the 13.9's and Windows 8. I rolled back to the 13.8's and all is good . No idea whats going on with those drivers . redface.gif

I don't suppose either of you have tried 13.10? Didn't read the changelog, but it couldn't hurt to see if it fixes your problems :p

Yeah, I saw the 3.10 beta drivers. I might give them a whirl when I have everything else installed software wise.

I just switched from 3.9 to 3.10 and it seems to be a bit more stable than 3.9 from what I've experienced this evening.
